Sony Flexible OLED display on display at CEATEC

Sony, and just about everyone else, has been fooling around with OLEDs for quite some time, and they’re starting to come up with some pretty clever applications of the technology. Flexible OLEDs have been in the news this year, and Sony’s getting into that game, too. In this short video we see a 0.2mm thin OLED display being gently bent back and forth, while actively showing content on its surface.

What might such a flexible OLED be used for? How about a single-surface multi-touch computer? No separate keyboard and screen, no hinge, and all sex appeal.

If that’s not enough for you, how about an all-touch Walkman, in the form of a bracelet? Or an all-touch eReader? This is a seriously good idea, and I hope Sony product-izes this tech soon.
